AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Nationally known marijuana consultants are among those advising Maine on how to set up its new adult-use cannabis market.

The Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/2xkJOl7 ) reports that the state had requested advice about implementing the voter-approved law legalizing recreational marijuana.

The state is not seeking paid consultants currently but could in the future.

Respondents include the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention and groups for and against marijuana legalization.

A legislative committee plans to hold a Sept. 26 hearing on an omnibus bill to regulate cultivation and retail sales.
